Chocolate Orange Cake

Sokehah Cheah | 12:35 AM | | |



This 'Chocolate Orange Cake' is from the same recipe as my earlier post on 'Chocolate Lemon Cake', except that I substituted lemon with orange rind and juice and given the cake a 'facelift'.  I added a chocolate topping trimmed with orange peel for decoration ...... not very good at it though, still plenty of room for improvement!












Ingredients for Chocolate topping
  • 4 oz dark cooking chocolate, break into smaller pieces
  • 3  Tbsp water
  • 1  tsp olive/salad oil
Method
  1. Steam/melt the chocolate with water and keep stirring over low heat.
  2. Once the chocolate has melted and it's creamy, add in the oil and turn off the heat.
  3. Mix well and pour over the cooled cake.
  4. Decorate with nuts or fruits of your choice.
In my case, I just sprinkled some shredded orange peel round the edge of the cake.

    Just used up what's left of the cooking choc, but luckily just enough for the recipe.
